Abstract


To say that education is a potent factor in any political restructuring is an undisputable fact. For a meaningful
political development to take place in any nation, especially like Nigeria. The place of education is never in
doubt to influence postively those in the position of authority to ascertain what are needed to put in place for
effective administration and good governance. Education as a matter of fact in this sense is not just what one
obtains in the institutions of learning, but it deals with all round development which makes one to contribute
meaningfully to the development of himself, his family, his society and the entire nation. The national policy on
education titled the philosophy of Nigeria Education made observations that since the national policy is geared
towards achieving that part of its national objectives that can be achieved using educaiton as a tool, no policy on
education can be formulated without first identifying the whole philosophy and objectives of the nation. It is on
this note that this paper examines “Education and Political restructure” as the parameter not only for political and
social stability in Nigeria but equally for national development.
